After the biopsy…

… I was wiped.  I’m ok, and I have some funny stories to tell about the grueling adventure that was an ultrasound-guided core needle biopsy (and when I say biopsy, I mean EIGHT large needles stuck in my armpit and through the nasty lymph nodes, taking samples of the tissue all the way through; there were a total of twelve needles in my armpit during the procedure yesterday).  But today, I rest, and catch up on a few things that I can do from bed.

I will tell you all about it, I promise; I just don’t think I can stand to re-live it right now.

Tonight, I’m determined to get out and go out with my friends.  If you’re looking for something to do and you’re in the D.C. area, why not join usJessica throws an AWESOME party, and there will be swag.  (Why yes, it is a blogger party.  How could you tell?)

Love to you all,

    Man, if I lived closer I would show up at this party! I’m glad you made it home in one piece. Ouch. That’s a lot of needles.

    Sending you hugs…gentle ones.

    Thinking of you sweet, friend.

  4. Oh the core needle…not something I’d describe easily either. Remember back when, I was covered w/ frozen peas after just 4 of the fun needles. That you’re going out and partying is such a testament to your vitality and survivability!

    Do a bit of partying for me, cuz I’m with you in spitit.

    i will be so thrilled to see you tonight. thank you for coming…but don’t overdo! i would rather you at home resting if that is what is best (or what you’re FANTASIZING about doing tonight!!)

    love you girl. my prayers are with you. yes, chris and I are praying for a good biopsy as you requested, but we’re also praying for a heck of a lot more too.

    Susan – I’ve been preoccupied for awhile and I missed what was happening with you. Please pardon my language but, fuck.
    I think about you and your family so often. And you are an inspiration to me. I just wish I could wrap you all up in my arms and make all this nasty cancer stuff go away. It sucks.
    I’m not the praying type, but for you? I will pray. (((hugs)))
